"BROGAN. An early surname in the parish of Slains, Aberdeenshire, evidently assumed from the lands of Broggan or Brogan, which were held under the Leasks (Jervise, n, p. 248). John Brogane was admitted burgess of Aberdeen in 1486 (NSCM., i, p. 32), and Agnes Brogan resigned her two parts of the lands in 1495 (Buchan Club Trans., x, p. 223). Thomas Brogane in Fuirdmouth of Arnage is in record in 1643 (RSCA., m, p. 16). "(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)
